Improving the quality of urban mobility measures through stakeholder engagement.
When considering the quality of urban mobility decisions, most CIVITAS cities involve a wide range of stakeholders in the measure development process. Through consultations, local communities are empowered and get a sense of ownership of results. At the same time, the level of interaction between decision makers and the target of their decisions is substantially increased, thus enhancing measure completeness, giving stakeholders a better understanding of the planned mobility measures and reducing later opposition to urban mobility.
The group exchanges on specific topics of relevance to public involvement, such as methods for building effective partnerships, how to develop strategies and involvement activities, ways to evaluate and incorporate stakeholders’ input. This group is open to representatives of CIVITAS Forum members who are working on implementing public consultations in their cities. Members of the group exchange with their peers on the means of benefiting from stakeholder participation in the eight thematic areas of CIVITAS.
